Oolong: loose leaf

canton honey orchid gift box

Wudong Mountain, Guangdong Province, China

One of the most famous and highly sought-after teas in the world, this lightly roasted oolong has distinctive floral notes and a fresh nectar sweetness. Growing only in Guangdong, the ancient tea bushes cling to the rocky mountain slopes – and grow so slowly that each leaf develops a truly unique and beautifully intense flavour.

The tea in the gift box is sealed in a clear compostable 'natureflex' bag, then packed in Canton's hinged-lid, airtight, white tin caddy and slipped inside a smart, black card gift box. The caddy is designed to keep. Use it to store high grade tea leaves bought in larger refill packs.
